The 1905 White Sox improved a bit from 1904, winning 92 games. They actually had the most wins in the AL that year, tied with the Philadelphia A's. So why didn't they win the pennant? Because the A's played four fewer games and finished 92-56. The AL did not make up cancelled games in those days, so the Sox had to settle for second place. Guiding them this year was second year manager/centerfielder...

1903 City Series

Posted 02-19-2012 at 09:46 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

The birth of the Chicago City Series coincided with the peace treaty brokered between the established National League and the brand-new, upstart American League. While the first place winners in each league (Boston and Pittsburgh) met in a "World Series" to settle the issue of who was the better team, owner Charles Comiskey of the White Sox challenged owner James Hart of the Cubs (then called the "Colts") to an informal best-of-15 series for "bragging rights."

Happy Groundhog Day! Today, in my White Sox Lunchbox, I have a hearty helping of “daydreaming” to share with you.

Turning over the calendar to a new month yesterday made me realize that we are inching, ever so slowly, toward that magical day when Sox baseball returns: Opening Day!
